Van Excellence ‘gold’ partners recognised with celebratory plaques
Six Freight Transport Association (FTA) Van Excellence
‘gold’ partners - ARI, Bott, Brigade
Electronics, Hertz, Lex Autolease and Microlise -
have received celebratory plaques in recognition of their “unstinting
support in promoting” the scheme.
The Van Excellence ‘gold’ partners for 2017 were
presented with the celebratory plaques at the 2017 Van
Excellence Operational Briefing in Twickenham. The presentations were made by
Julie Davies, of Amey Fleet Services, chairman of the Van
Excellence Governance Group.
The Van Excellence scheme is an
industry-led initiative which promotes the safe operation of vans, celebrates
operators that demonstrate excellence and represents the interests of the van
Each ‘gold’ partner is from a different service sector
within the van industry and supports the scheme in all its initiatives and by
promoting best practice in van operations.
FTA sponsorship and advertising manager Will Reeves said:
“This year we have welcomed two new ‘gold’ partners - Brigade Electronics
and Microlise - both of which have recognised the value the scheme
brings to the sector and stepped up from being ‘recognised’ partners.
“The ‘gold’ partners support Van Excellence throughout
the year in providing funding for the Operational Briefings, Van
Report, Driver of the Year and a new Charity Accreditation Fund that will
be launched shortly. Without their vital support, the scheme could
not continue to improve standards and increase compliance across the vans
sector, and the reputation and skills of the partners set the gold standard for
the Van Excellence scheme which the rest of the sector aspires to.”
